Students receive the case the morning of their competition date. They will have approximately 4 hours to work through their recommendations to present to the judges, comprised of industry professionals and academic leaders. In this competition, you are not allowed any outside materials and no internet access. All necessary materials will be provided to you by the competition directors. You will be evaluated on your case solution, presentation and originality/critical thinking. It’s a great opportunity to learn from industry professionals as they give feedback to each group after they compete!

One exciting aspect of this case competition is that the competition in February is a preliminary round for the global case competition happening later in the year. If you make finals, the trip to the global competition will be free! A couple years ago, two Canadian teams won the global challenge in Las Vegas, placing 1st and 2nd place. This means beating countries such as China and Japan. One interesting fact is that each of these Canadian teams were made up of individuals with English as their 2nd language!
This competition will give you a case that you’ll have to analyze during the day and present on the same day.
